The Sooners went 0-for-16 from beyond the arc. That shatters some confidence – especially in the guard who is known for making them: Steven Pledger.
4. Come ready to play
Osby said in the post-game that the Horned Frogs landed the first punch, but Oklahoma should have been ready regardless. Iowa State finished with the same conference record as Oklahoma. The Cyclones most likely won't make it as easy for Oklahoma to try and mount a comeback.
5. Focus on game day
Oklahoma had two short practices last week, and when the clock started, it didn't seem like they were ready to play at their normal level. Unlike the game against Texas, when the Sooners were focused from the start and just had seven bad minutes of play near the end, against TCU the Sooners struggled to accrue sound possessions in the first half. Focusing on the Iowa State game as one that isn't already a W should help the Sooners look more like when they upset Kansas rather when they lost to TCU.
